Katie Green's Lighter Than My Shadow is our Debut Spotlight pick this month. This unique graphic novel highlights the scourge of eating disorders through the story of a young girl whose picky eating habits soon turn into something far more sinister. Senior Editor Adrian Liang says that "Green exposes buried-deep emotions through the slope of a shoulder or the slightly-too-big distance between her characters in a way that can’t be mimicked through words...You’ll finish [it] determined to look more closely at your friends and loved ones—and especially your children—to make sure you’re not missing what’s masked by a benign surface."
